Scott Hunter

Corporate Trainer Specializing in Workplace Relationships

Scott Hunter, BEE, JD, CSP has been transforming organizations for over two decades, through keynote speeches, workshops, retreats and management team coaching.

Since 1985 he has helped hundreds of businesses, delivered over 1,000 speeches and worked with over 250,000 individuals as a business coach and speaker.  He has conducted over 175 corporate retreats for groups as small as 2 and as large as 44, consistently producing breakthroughs in the participants personal and professional lives and setting the stage for the companies they manage to achieve results that go way beyond their expectations. 

Clients say things like, "In the 9 months since we started to work with you, we've had more opportunities and successes than in the previous 9 years." Or, "You changed the way we do business and oh yes, my family life works better too."

Scott didn't start out as an organizational change agent.  Following receipt of an engineering degree from the City University of New York, Scott spent four years working in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office in Washington, DC while he attended George Washington Law School at night, graduating in the top 10% of his class. He moved to California and eventually opened a private law practice.

Scott's own success journey seemed to be stalled.  After 11 years, he was still struggling to pay the bills. He was divorced. Even his secretary quit.

And that's when Scott's real career started.  He began researching what it takes for people to produce extraordinary results in their personal lives and careers and for companies to break through to new levels of profitability and success. He took classes. He read books and signed up for one seminar after another.

It took several years, but ultimately Scott's whole life turned around. He became a partner in a major law firm, managing an office and enjoying an income he had only dreamed of previously.

In 1983, Scott decided to retire from his law practice so he could help other companies make the same success journey he had made. Using what he learned painfully, through trial and error, he realized he could guide others to move to their own success goals, bypassing costly, time-consuming detours. He created a 5-step system to deliver repeatable results and he has been teaching that system for the last 20+ years.

Now Scott works as a successful business coach and speaker. He speaks to thousands of people each year and shares advice with CEOs of corporations of all sizes. His book, Unshackled Leadership has received successful reviews and garnered a following among  executives, professionals and students.  He's been recognized as an "expert" on over 50 radio talk shows and appeared on a number of television news programs. In 2007, he was recognized for excellence by the National Speakers Association and was awarded the Certified Speaking Professional designation. And he makes time for his favorite avocation: cycling trips to explore new countries and scenes around the world.

Scott continues to work to stretch the limits of his knowledge and his capabilities. He has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars and devoted months of his life to seminars and programs. He's studied with the best coaches, motivational speakers and industry leaders.

"Scott has the rare ability to touch people's hearts and turn those emotions into practical action; to rattle cages and challenge the status quo, then provide a roadmap for audiences to follow; to discuss broad life values and connect them to work-related values."

Creating an Extraordinary OrganizationThe Mindset of Leadership

People work to live.  Work is the place where they spend the majority of their time.  And for many, it is an environment which is dysfunctional at best, emotionally debilitating at worst.  Only six percent of Americans say that they love their jobs.  More than $300 billion, or $7500 per employee, is spent annually in the United States on stress-related compensation claims.  Job burnout experienced by 25% to 40% of U.S. workers is the leading occupational disease and responsible for more days lost from work than any other single factor.

This is all very unfortunate because personality conflicts, power struggles, unspoken hidden agendas, misunderstandings, people not feeling appreciated or understood, and turnover all negatively impact a company’s bottom line, as well as robbing people of the aliveness they want at work. With such circumstances, how are companies to plan for and adapt to the many dramatic changes they continue to face?

An organization’s leader must provide that elusive quality called leadership. Most people think that leaders are born rather than made. That simply is not true. Leaders demonstrate an ability, which can be learned, to powerfully speak and listen in a way that engenders hope, confidence, and enthusiasm in the people within the organization.

In this program, you will learn the fine art of leadership and how to create a working environment that nurtures and supports people to be creative, productive and profitable. Topics to be included are:

  • How to listen so that people have the experience of being heard

  • How to use language to create the most empowering environment possible

  • How to best provide leadership for your team
